It’s very sad to hear about Jack Layton’s death this morning. His heart, his mind, his words and actions were strong. The body went.

He recently wrote a letter to Canadians to be read on the event of his death. His much quoted words: “My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world.” – Jack Layton

I wasn’t too fond of his mustache, but then, he was a politician and they have mustaches.  Other than that, he was very admirable and will be dearly missed.  It hurts to know he isn’t here.


About leyaevelyn

About thirty years ago, I moved from New York City to rural Nova Scotia. For an artist, it is a good place to live. Spacious and quiet. Despite the beautiful scenery and frequently grey skies, my abstract paintings focus on color, its expressive qualities and how it creates form and space.
